Muse & Silversun Pickups @ MSG in NYC – pics, setlist

Muse

The sheer explosion of music and technology was an assault on the senses, bringing out the best of my deeply geeky appreciation for both. Before taking the stage, there was a guest appearance by Matt Pinfield looking to get the crowd amped up while cautioning audience members to be sure not to miss the moment when they took the stage. Let me tell you, he wasn’t kidding. Playing the waiting game before a show always has a bit of excitement and anxiety as you just want to see the band come out as you get swept away in the moment. As we waited for Muse to take the stage we were left looking at a stage with 3 floor-to-ceiling columns covered with a fabric scrim. Not too visually appealing in the state they were in, but you couldn’t help wonder what part they would play come show time…Matt Bellamy is a rock god, and it couldn’t be more fitting that once the lights dimmed, the columns turned into three buildings with staircases with the band members coming down the steps, as if from heaven. The aha moment came when the screens fell and revealed the band members on separate raised square platforms, suspended mid-arena with large columns projecting each of them on all four sides while they opened with “Uprising” from their latest album. There wasn’t a bad seat in the house. [Geek Bouteek]

Silversun Pickups opened the show Friday night at Madison Square Garden. More pictures and Muse’s setlist below…
